Happy Mother's Day

Good morning

Not such a nice morning weather wise - damp and foggy here, let's hope it burns off and we get some sunshine later.  

It is Mother's Day in the UK tomorrow.  I lost my own Mum a couple of year's ago, but here's the card I made for my Mother-in-Law.  She loves flowers so I'm sure she will love the image.  

The image is from a LOTV Art Pad "Set 3 - Wild Flowers" and has been matted and layered onto Bazzill card stock.  The background papers are from "Timeless Victorian" paper pad and the sentiment from "Set 26 - Simply Sophisticated" both from LOTV.  I decided to drag the old sewing machine out to stitch around the edges - like the effect and must make an effort to do this more!  

The border die is from Magnolia and the corner die is "Filigree Corner" by La-La-Land.  A Tonic punch was used to create the little butterflies.  The flowers "Cherry Blossom, Sweetheart Blooms and Gypsophilia" are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearl spray is from Anna Marie Designs.  The ribbon and pearls are from my craft box.

I would like to enter this in the following challenge:
